New old worlds
UVic’s Medieval Studies Program introduces you to other times and places, to societies and arts which look strangely familiar, though radically different. Meet the stories, civilizations, and ideas that made our cultures.
The program of Medieval Studies proposes explorations of diverse and bygone worlds that still feed our dreams and works of art with romance, courage, adventure, journeys, and marvels.
